This is a great RTS game for those who love stragety games, The unit control is great and the diffrent roles for Infantry, Armor, Support and Air is also great, I strongly suggest that if you get this game then go download the Modern Warfare mod for this game, it changes the game and for the better, It updates the units to what the military is using today, There is modernized rocket artillery, the Air role is given Jets, although you cannot control the Jets you can order fire missions on enemy units. All I have left to say is if you like real-time stragety games, then GET THIS GAME

I dont know, WHO those people with good reviews, but THIS GAME DOES NOT WORK on newer hardware with windows 7 (x64)
Seriously? This game ARE sold be steam - and it only can be launched on operation system which ARE NOT SUPPORTED BY MICROSOFT ANYMORE???

Dont buy it unless you have Windows XP. Or this will be a waste of money (Steam dont do refunds, you know?)
=====================================================
Я не знаю, ктопишет эти положительные ревью, но ЭТА ИГРА НЕ РАБОТАЕТ с новыми компьютерами - и даже не поддерживает виндоус 7.
Серьезно? Игра, продающаяся в стиме может быть запущена только на операционной системе, любая поддержка которой прекращена разработчиками?
Не покупайте ее, если у вас не стоит виндоус XP, или это будет пустой тратой денег, так как Стим официально не делает возвратов...
Также в ней нет русского, а английская озвучка ужасна по сравнению с русской.

If you have a modern machine game is not very stable. Look at the forums and do some research before purchasing the game.

NOTE: My time here is not accurate, I owned a non-Steam copy that I had countless hours on, not sure exactly.

This game is maybe the best RTS ever made, coming from someone who loves RTSs. At its peak, the multiplayer was my favorite multiplayer game ever, but there isn't much happening on the servers these days. The campaign is a bit lackluster but still fun.

The reason this game was so good was its fast paced action that was still easy to micromanage. It was super fun learning how to properly use the different classes in multiplayer. The best part is using artillery and air strikes to level areas of the map, and using each type of tactical aid to perfection.

I'll try to keep it short:

by the way, I did not play the multiplayer.

Pro's:

- Very good looking Strategy Game
- Interesting Story
- Innovative camera
- Play on both sides (USSR+ USA) which diminishes the good/bad cliche a bit.

Con's:

- unfortunately no Building, just calling reinforcements (you have to use a points system, the reinforcements get dropped in via airplane)
- gets a bit repetitive after a while (In every mission you either have to conquer a spot or hold it, or both^^)
- Story-ending to open for my taste
- Normal mode is too easy
- in some parts the story is too cliche. (I don't want to spoil, but you will see it when you play the game)

Conclusion:

Can recommend it for strategy fans who do not need a serieus challenge and are ok with not being able to build a base!

The game appears to have been broken for some time. You will have to do some work to get the game to run just the intoduction to how to play. Once you complete that the game will not go on to any campaign. You will spend hours attempting to fix it and finally you will give up annoyed that you lost $10 USD, or whatever it was on sale for.

Save the heartache don't buy it.

Challenging and complex game requiring teamwork, communications, and rapid decision making, (as well as a basic understanding of the mechanics of the game) in order to be at all successful in multiplayer.
Unfortunately the game is irretrievably broken due to the following;
-If you own a modern computer with a reasonably up-to-date OS, you are going to struggle to get this game to run. (see other reviews, forums, etc)
-game is showing it's age graphically, and there is no possibility whatsoever of any kind of patch, update, or even technical support.
-Collapsing player base makes it difficult to find active online servers. Currently there are about 1000 players total distributed worldwide. East coast USA prime time usually has one server active, same with Euro prime time, and you are usually going to have to wait to get a game. Anywhere else and you are going to see nothing but empty servers unless you stay up until 3 in the morning.
-Toxic "community" that is very unwelcoming to new players, and even established ones. Great if you enjoy verbal abuse, insults, racial and sexual slurs, and ragers on the mic. Check the Massgate forums if you want a sample of how the "community" act towards one another.

I've played this game for years and at times really enjoyed it. In it's current state I can't recommend it to anyone looking to have any fun, because currently, it's just not. I've uninstalled it, as the "good old days" for this game, have, sadly, come and gone.

Alright, i usually never write reviews...however i waited 30-50mins to download this game, i am however sad to say the game's CAMPAIGN crashes to a black screen loads up and the timer goes down still but no troops no cutscenes...etc So i highly recommend you thinking about the small hassel of needing to modify / reinstalling it inorder for it to work properly before you buy it.
